Eye Tattoos

This photo was taken at the southwest corner of 104th Street and Amsterdam Ave.

You may think that you know what is going on right here … but chances are that you don’t. The creating on the far side of the street was built between 1881 and 1883, and it was made as a residence for &quotrespectable aged indigent females.&quot It was created by a charitable organization that was founded in 1813 to help widows of both the American Revolution and the War of 1812.

I will tell you far more about it in a few weeks, when I get about to uploading the July six, 2013 pictures that I took while walking south on Amsterdam Avenue from 110th Street to 91st Street.

Meanwhile, get back on your bicycle and preserve on riding …

***************

This set of photos is primarily based on a very basic concept: stroll every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To steer clear of missing something, stroll both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be far more ambitious, you could also stroll the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s a lot more than I’m prepared to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, much more adventurous photographers.

Oh, really, there is one a lot more modest detail: leave the photographs alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I really concentrate on the 1st of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken a lot more than eight,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the numerous spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I don’t anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot images, and hope that I’ll be in a position to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to choose the little subset of each-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Very first, I will upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and exactly where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-buddies will be, &quotI have no concept when or exactly where that photo was taken, but it is actually a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who looks at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I will discover other, far more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be capable to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to somebody from an additional portion of the country, or an additional portion of the planet, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may possibly be some photos where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may say, &quotI had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually looking at the images about five years later, and becoming stunned by how a lot had changed. Little by small, retailer by retailer, day by day, factors adjust … and when you’ve been around as lengthy as I have, it is even far more amazing to go back and appear at the photographs you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then? Seriously, did men and women truly wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be hunting at these each and every-block photographs 5 or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my greatest to capture scenes that convey the sense that they had been taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no concept what we’re calling this decade yet). Or maybe they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I’ll eventually determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are one more clear example of a time-particular phenomenon and even though I am undoubtedly not a fashion expert, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did women really wear those weird skirts that are quick in the front, and long in the back? Did absolutely everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has a single, which undoubtedly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it seems that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious focus riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may well be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it quite simple for me to photograph them without having their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I cannot assist asking yourself whether or not this sort of social behavior will appear bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, 1 last point: I’ve developed a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of each day’s photo-walk. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent portion of my each and every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it every day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any recommendations about locations that I ought to certainly check out to get some great photographs, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your small corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can e mail me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-stroll continues, block by block …
